Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has stated that Iyorchia Ayu has allegedly refused to resign as the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) because he is corrupt and wants to keep managing the party’s finances.
This was said by Wike over the weekend during a press conference in Port Harcourt, the state capital of Rivers.
Insisting that it is against PDP’s constitution for the national chairman and the presidential candidate to come from the same zone, the governor and his allies have been demanding on Ayu to step down.
Ayu is from Benue (North Central), while Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential hopeful, is from Adamawa (North East).
The PDP national chairman was also accused by Wike of being “very corrupt” and not being responsible for the funds that enter the party’s coffers.

He already completed the 11 billion Naira loan from the party’s primaries. He claims it is in the account, therefore account for it. Display the account to the public. Publish PDP’s statement of accounts so that everyone may see how the N11 billion was used.
And this is the party that we have all worked to unseat the incumbent government party, which we claimed had performed poorly. The national chairman will then start talking about disqualifying contestants.
